Versatile Texas DB chooses Iowa State

Entering May, Iowa State and head coach Paul Rhoads had one commitment -- albeit a good one in four-star wide receiver Allen Lazard (Urbandale, Iowa/Urbandale), who earned a ticket to The Opening on Sunday at the Chicago Nike Football Training Camp.

The Cyclones welcomed commitment No. 2 on Saturday in cornerback De’Monte Ruth (Dallas/Wilmer-Hutchins), and late Sunday, the Cyclones picked up their third overall commit in safety Victor Holmes (La Porte, Texas/La Porte).

A 5-foot-11, 177-pound safety, Holmes chose Iowa State over heavy interest from Rice. Holmes was recruited to Iowa State by running backs coach Kenith Pope. He visited the campus and took in all that Ames, Iowa, had to offer last month.
